About this blog
Before you start trading Forex, you need to set up an account with a broker. The broker is essentially a mediator, individual or company that buys and sells orders according to the retailer. Brokers profit either from charging a fee for their services, or (and this is more often) from the spread. Considering the huge number of brokers offering their services online, it's likely you may feel helpless and overloaded by lots of information you may do not know what to do with. And it is not easy to choose the right broker.
It would be best to check a number of online Forex trading forums for feedback from individual users regarding the amount of downtime that they have experienced. Remember it is like with all online forums do not listen to the loudest voice as they may have a vested interest either way in recommending or not recommending who in their opinion are the best Forex brokers.
Forex brokers are individuals or companies that assist individual traders and companies when they are trading in the Forex market. These individuals can really give you that extra edge you need in order to be successful in the Forex market. Although they will be trading your funded account, all the decisions are still yours to make if you want to.
Whether you are a retail or small institutional forex trader, we all need to trade through a forex brokerage firm. The bigger you are the closer you move to the major market participants - banks, mutual funds, hedge funds, large investment firms. They take up about 75% of the forex market capitalization. Some banks could be brokers themselves. The remaining 25% are individual traders like you and me, and small trading firms.
With the rapid growth of the retail Forex trading market (the ordinary forex trading world for you and me), one can see more and more online Forex brokers appearing daily trying to grab some profits out of this fast growing market. It is often difficult to choose a Forex broker with all the choice out there
